Be all Merry - SATB and solo vln (Christmas) - Eoghan Desmond $2.75
Composed for the Choral Scholars of University College Dublin and the Irish Chamber Orchestra, Be All Merry evokes the often chaotic cheer of Christmas. The title of the piece is a command as much as anything else, and as the piece builds towards the lines 'Be All Merry in this house/Exultet Caelum Laudibus!' the texture bubbles up and spills over, not so much in ecstasy, but something reminiscent of that sense of having ticked everything off your Christmas list, only to realise you've forgotten to buy a crucial gift!
